The Sociology major has a strong theory and methods core. Sociology majors find employment in a variety of occupations, including human services, corrections, law enforcement, marketing, management, human resources, research, and social activism. The sociology program also provides excellent preparation for graduate study in sociology and related fields. Although the Sociology major can work well for many students, it is especially appropriate for students who are double majors, students who already have substantial work experience, and students who plan to enter professional schools or traditional sociology graduate programs immediately after graduation.
